Privileged Access Management
Safeguarding your most critical assets
There is a whole class of users who operate within your IT ecosystem who have the power to make significant changes to your IT environment, bypass security controls and access sensitive information.
To perform their function in your IT ecosystem they need this level of power. These users are known as Privileged Users. As in many contexts, with great power comes great responsibility. Misuse of privileged access by an employee (intentionally or unintentionally), or malicious use of the privileged access, can result in compromise of sensitive data or critical systems.
Because the risk associated with privileged access is so significant, organisations' need to implement a strong and robust capability that administers and governs the use of Privileged Accounts. The controls and techniques required to achieve strong Privileged Access Management are well understood in the industry, and there are a number of key toolsets that can be used by organisations'.
It is important to note that, no matter how good the tool is, success in Privileged Access Management is about people, process and tools.
Restricting Administrative Privileges is one of the Essential 8 Controls
No matter how good the tool is, success in Privileged Access Management is about the people, process and tools working together in harmony.
